Description:

Right and slightly uphill from the start of "Another Green World" is a large, low-angle, right-facing dihedral. Climb this, along with pure face climbing on the right, for 140 feet, until a short finger crack on the left allows you to get onto the main face of the Lip. The upper reaches of the crack in the dihedral requires large gear. Now follow the crack left until it ends, protect at a small tree, and continue left to a nice pine tree with rappel slings.

Descent Options:

Double-rope rappel from slings on the pine tree.

3 out of 5 stars Tougher than the book rating...

Actually an interesting climb - a beginning leader needs to be either bold or have access/dropped a load of cash on big gear to get on the upper section of the dihedral. Nice long pitch - 60m rope needed to do in 1 pitch to the rap tree.
